Minneapolis Area Synod receives a special visitor at its assembly

The Minneapolis Area Synod had a special visitor at its assembly in February — Martin Luther.

PHOTO COURTESY the MINNEAPOLIS AREA The plastic statue rode to the assembly with Sara Masters, synod communications director, and was later spotted at the registration table.

One of 500 created by artist Ottmar Hörl, the statue was a gift from the synod's companion, the Leipzig [Germany] Parish. Originally the statues were displayed in Wittenberg while the permanent statue of Luther in the town square was renovated in anticipation of the upcoming 500th anniversary of the Reformation.
